Just an hour by plane from Germany is London, THE cultural metropolis of Europe. You will find yourself landing in a different world: Your fascination for London will never leave you even after you have finished your work placement. London is a trendsetter for fashion, design and music, and you will be right in the middle of this cosmopolitan city that oozes a lust for life.
If it is too hectic for you in the capital, we recommend an internship in the idyllic coastal town of Brighton in the south of England. Manchester and Newcastle are also destinations where you can carry out your PractiGo foreign work placement.
Cities: You can choose from Brighton, London, Manchester, Newcastle, Oxford and York.
Length of internship: From six weeks to a year.
Start date: Every Monday, all year round.
Accommodation: Host family or shared apartment (London and Newcastle only).
Language courses: The internship may be booked without a language course. PractiGo generally recommends a preparatory two-week language course, in order to become acclimatised. Exception is Newcastle. Here a four week preparatory language course is mandatory.
Specifics: You decide when, where and in which area the internship is to be carried out.
Language skills: You should have a good grasp of written and spoken English. You can learn the language or refresh your knowledge with a preparatory course.
